Home Sweet Home Again

Project Description

An Image of Home | Ruthann Hanson Magler

We open the door to home
And enter the world
We open the door to the world
And enter home

Home is where we are
Its realities shape us
Its dreams inspire us
Its hurts give us
Something to grow beyond

In good times/In bad times

We enter our homes
There’s a meal/a quilt
Sometimes people who call us by name

Home is where we imagine
Goodness to be
A shelter against
The chaos of life

A launching pad
From which to enter
The world
In exchange for
A purpose in life
